yeh ram is hardly going to upgrade your gaming experience.

you will see a much bigger improvement with a new card

any of those choices will be a great card

no point getting a dx10 card yet as we can clearly see at the moment current dx10 hardware cant even keep up with dx10 patched dx9 games.

1950pro would be a great choice imo, best bang for the buck aswell
